Dick Van Dyke to Receive SAG Lifetime Achievement Award

Steve Granitz/WireImage(NEW YORK) -- Congrats are in order for Dick Van Dyke.  The veteran actor and comic will receive SAG-AFTRA’s highest honor, the SAG Life Achievement Award for career achievement and humanitarian accomplishment.

“Dick is the consummate entertainer -- an enormously talented performer whose work has crossed nearly every major category of entertainment," says SAG-AFTRA Co-President Ken Howard in a statement. "From his career-changing Broadway turn in Bye Bye Birdie and his deadpan humor in the Emmy-winning Dick Van Dyke Show, to his unforgettable performance as Bert in Mary Poppins, he sets a high bar for actors."

"Stage, big screen, small screen, literally everywhere he has worked he has inspired millions of fans and has had a tremendously positive impact on the industry and the world. He is so deserving of this honor and I congratulate him,” the statement continues.

Van Dyke, who's 86, will receive his award during the 19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards on Jan. 27, 2013.
